How does it work?
Implants can be used to add more definition to certain areas of the body such as the buttocks, pecs, calves, breasts, biceps, triceps and hips. Performed under a general anaesthetic, implant surgery involves an incision being made in the relevant area, before the insertion of silicone implants. The incision is then sewn back up with dissolvable stitches.
Some significant downtime is to be expected following an implant procedure – normal exercise can be resumed after a month, and it can take several months for the implants to begin to feel natural. Discomfort is also to be expected as the body begins to heal – buttock implants in particular can cause a fair amount of pain, as this area is involved in activities such as walking and sitting down.
Reasons for wanting implants vary – some people are looking to have reconstructive surgery to repair damage caused by an accident or injury, whilst others are hoping to correct a congenital defect. For the remainder of patients looking to undergo this procedure, implants are a way to achieve the figure they’ve always wanted – from more defined pectoral or arm muscles to more curvaceous hips and buttocks.

Is it for me?
Boys, implants aren’t just for girls – if you are looking to gain more definition and to develop the body you’ve always dreamed of, this procedure could help you to achieve your goal. It’s important to make sure you’ve discussed the implant procedure thoroughly with your doctor before going through with it – they will help to make sure that you are fully prepared and aware of all associated risks.
